Internet of Things (IoT) in Consumer Goods - Thematic Research


Internet of Things (IoT) technology is most valuable to consumer goods companies in its capacity to facilitate the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI). IoT collects the data, 5G transmits it, and AI extracts insight from it. All three technologies have recently come of age and can now be implemented at low cost for high rewards. They should be implemented across the entire supply chain.Whether consumer companies will profit or suffer from the emergence of IoT depends on the strength of their IoT strategies. A strong IoT strategy with effective implementation will bring efficiency gains across supply chains and align product offerings with modern, post-COVID consumption habits. Conversely, companies without a strong strategy will be caught out or overtaken by competitors.


  • Internet of Things (IoT) technology is most valuable to consumer goods companies in its capacity to facilitate the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI).
  • Consumer goods companies should install dumb, basic IoT sensors across the value chain to gather the data required by AI systems. With astute implementation, this will enhance operational efficiency, reduce costs, improve decision-making, and provide a better customer experience.
  • Companies should resist flashy, gimmicky IoT features. Technological features do not attract consumers.
